    Just a quick question, with competition editing is it possible to edit the amount of subs you can pick as in changing premier league subs from 7 to 12?
  • geauxfish's avatar
    How do I find the Mac version? The download isn't compatible with my Mac.
  • Stam's avatar
    @Over: Yes. But download, install, open and see for yourself. As much is free. License is only needed to save your edits.
  • Over's avatar
    It's not very clear to me, does this work fully with FM Touch 2019, or just the main game, Football Manager 2019?
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE19 has been updated to v2.1.2.0 which adds compatibility for today's 19.1.1 patch (update from Beta to full release) on both FM and FM Touch. It also addresses a number of bugs. A feature update is coming soon! ;)

    @sabar: What version? Open FM19, click on the FM icon, then select "About Football Manager".
  • sabar_subur's avatar

  • AgentGarcia's avatar
    @ Stam
    Thank you, now it works. I did not open the FM ;-)
    One request: is it possible to change the Player Characters contract? It would be great if you could give yourself a 5 year contract...
  • Stam's avatar
    @AgentGarcia: Latest FMSE19 version ( should work fine with latest FM19 version (19.1.0). Can't think of any other reason why it shouldn't. You need to have FM19 open with your save loaded in it before you try to load on FMSE19.

    @Nobility: Interesting choice (swapping a contracted with an uncontracted player). I've passed this to Thanos to investigate as it sounds like a bug.

    Hi there! I just purchased the FM 19 Scout Editor.
    Unfortunately, I cannot open Savegames. It always says: " Failed to load manager data. Could not find a compatible Football Manager version "
    What can I do?
    I bought the game originally at Gamesplanet.
    I just read the FAQ. As a solution it says that I participate at a Steam Beta and I had to stop it in order to load a save game in the editor. But it doesn´t work :-( I do not participate in any Steam Client Beta...
    Anyone an idea whats wrong?
  • Nobility's avatar
    When I swap the teammate with a person in a free transfer. The player shows he is in my team however I can not pick the player for any game and he does not show up in squad view.
  • Stam's avatar
    @Snusen: Try disabling your antivirus if you're installing a new version (and FMSE19 is already installed before).
  • Snusen's avatar
    Anyone else getting the Setup Failed error? 0x80070643 - Fatal error during Installation?
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    So fast u are
    Big thanks Stam
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE19 has been updated to v2.1.1.0 which adds compatibility for today's 19.1.0 patch on both FM and FM Touch. We didn't anticipate another patch before November 2nd, so this is just a patchfix update. Next one should have a feature addition as well.
